Plot

Though they were initially painted as the bad guys in 'Captain Marvel', the Skrulls were soon revealed to be firmly on the side of good - in the future, it's revealed that Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) has been working with them on their ship, making use of their shapeshifting abilities from afar, even sending Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) down to Earth to impersonate Nick Fury in his stead. The new series will focus on Nick Fury and Talos dealing with a secret invasion of Skrulls back on Earth - apparently by a rogue faction of Skrull agents.

'Secret Invasion' was the name of a major Marvel comics event, helmed by Miles Morales co-creator Brian Michael Bendis, which revealed that a number of Marvel superheroes had been replaced by Skrulls, with some replacements having gone back years. The series' tagline was "Who do you trust?", and featured a number of covers and promotional art showing well-known Marvel characters as Skrulls.
